Still Above the US on the "Best Countries" List

So there are occasional book sales at the student store, when you can get books for cheap, cheap prices. I check them out whenever they pop up, and always add a few to my ever-growing collection.

Now, when I saw this book (the only one of its kind), I knew it was a sign. I had to buy it right away.


One day, Finland. One day...

Ah, Finland is only one step higher than the US on the UN's Human Development Index for this year. You're better off with Iceland, Norway, Australia, Canada, Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland, Japan, the Netherlands or France, though I suppose Finland isn't doing too bad. Hey, they're still doing better than we are. Wasn't that what you were saying originally?

However, Iceland, Norway, Australia, Canada, Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland, Japan, the Netherlands and France don't have a bunch of Finnish summer school residents who think I'm the greatest and want me to go to Finland. :)

france? really christopher? france? the land where rail workers, strike for weeks on end, bringing the economy down? It's also full of french, and that's just not as good as american, in this book. But maybe canada's alright.

Rinoa actually has a finnish friend, who may be visiting over the summer which is somewhat relevant.
